Difference here is that AVGN isn't a considered to be representing nintendo, which Chris was with his employment and answering questions on a podcast regarding nintendo policy.

Whether Chris was right or not in tone, his answers were not of the typical Nintendo PR lingo. He said things Nintendo normally doesn't comment on and did so as if he were a major representative of the company. It's a shame he lost his dream job over a single mistake, but it's not hard to see why Nintendo let him go.

It's not. Skylanders, the little I've played, seems like a really fun party game/game with friends, but there's areas of the game that can't be accessed without a Skylander that uses a certain element. You can beat the story just fine, I'm sure, but a lot of extra rooms and additional places to go are inaccessible if you only have one guy.

Bayonetta was the global #1 pick for "feasible characters"; it's possible Cloud was somewhere in the top ten on that same list. Also, the final DLC slot went to another Fire Emblem character because someone on the Smash team has a hard-on for Fire Emblem (God I hope the next Smash cuts down on the FE character count by five or six). Also also, they couldn't keep the team together for endless DLC development (remember: all the DLC was done from scratch after development of the full game) because that just doesn't make sense. We're lucky to have gotten the DLC we did because Nintendo didn't have to go that far and support the game for this long.

With Nintendo's production cycle, I wouldn't be surprised if they were already working on it though. It takes them like 5 years to make a game, and it's been a year or so since they've been in full production mode on Sm4sh. They may not be going into full production any time soon, but they're probably kicking around ideas for new mechanics/stages/fighters and doing tech tests on the hardware.

Nintendo Badge Arcade for 3DS, a free-to-play virtual UFO catcher for "badges" that you could use to decorate your Home menu. You can spend $1 to get five plays/tries, but you can also do the "practice catcher" once a day that could possibly get you free tries. The game will also occasionally give you a free try, usually coupled with what is essentially a sales pitch for another Nintendo title. It's surprisingly fun with the decoration part also being surprising entertaining.

diffrent kinds of catchers.

Also if you can figure out which to pull or push and can't get them then you can make others fall when you grab one. Pink Rabbit has been getting some hate from some sections.

Cloud is great and I want to like Ryu, but somethings just a punch off. I keep trying to play him like a street fighter character and the normal and tilt moves just don't connect well.

Also remembering why I quit playing. Unlocking special moves on (at least on 3DS) is a fucking nightmare and they still haven't changed it to at least stop dropping moves and costume parts you already have. Just introduce a shop already, we all have millions of worthless coins sitting around anyway. Fuck even make it paid DLC to unlock all the moves, anything is better than what you have right now and that's not even mentioning the fact you fucks won't give Lucas, Mewtwo or firemarth customs despite mewtwos code having quite a few almost finished and in place.

Speaking of Fire Emblem, after realizing it was the only Nintendo franchise I had never ever played, I decided to give it a go. Starting with Fire Emblem 7 on GBA. And holy fucking shit I hate this game already. This is beyond difficult. This game is hard to the point where I'm actually shocked that this has mass-market appeal. The first 10 missions weren't that bad, but I can't get past chapter 12, and I've tried like twenty fucking times.

I'm not big on strategy games to begin with, but having my units be permanently killed off infuriates me, especially as a completionist. It's not like these are random soldiers, they're fleshed out characters in an RPG. So if they die, I lose a chunk of story. That pisses me off, and allowing that to happen is unacceptable to me. So any time something goes wrong, in a mission that usually takes me at least 20 minutes to do, I have to restart the game and reload my save every time someone dies.

So then I tried using an emulator and using savestates. Nope, that's not working either. I can't level people up and have them survive at the same time. Then I tried, one last ditch effort, a code that gave everyone an instant levelup after any battle. Even then, I fucked up and someone died, TWICE. And it took twice as long thanks to the leveling animations. I can't even follow a Youtube walkthrough because of all the random variables in the AI. And I would put up with all of this if it had a story I cared about, but so far it's incredibly bland and cliche.

Someone please, PLEASE sell me on this series, because so far I just don't fucking get it.

Fire Emblem is a difficult series. Not to sound like a dick but 'git gud' really is all there is to it.

Honestly you should probably not start with 7. I did, and I enjoyed it, but the newer games have difficulty settings which allow for both brutally hard and pretty casual play. Awakening even has an option where you can turn off the perma-death. Awakening might actually be the best place to start, it was the first FE that wasn't a completely niche title (FE has never had mass appeal) and I think that's in large part because it was the most accessible. If you have a boner for playing things in order then maybe pick up Shadow Dragon, since it's a remake of the very first game.

As for the story, well, out of the FEs I've played (which to be fair is only like 4 of them) all of them had pretty cliche by-the-numbers storylines. Plot has never really been a strong point in FE games. The best part of the writing is actually in the character dialogues when you get them to level up their relationship with each other, though I don't know if you've even gotten to learning about that mechanic yet. That's another perk about Awakening, actually. It's waaaaay easier for units to level their relationship enough to trigger dialogue, and while each character can only reach MAXIMUM RELATIONSHIP status with one other unit, they can have as many conversations with other characters as you want them to. I think in every previous game a character is limited to like, three conversations total the whole game, and if you want to see the rest you'd just have to look them up on the internet or play the game however many times it takes to see them.

Honestly I'm not a big fan of FE so I get where you're coming from. I've tried to get into the series a few times but always stopped playing about halfway through. Not out of difficulty, really, but just because by that point I get kind of bored with it. It definitely isn't for everyone, and it's fine to not like it. If you want to give it another go I'd say to pick up a more recent title, unless you're deadset on finishing the game you've started.

I'm thinking a Pokeball-like item that calls in a random CO move would be nice, since it'd let them show off a wider range of COs without having to make each one a whole fighter. That and maybe an arena that cycles between backgrounds for each terrain type while crossfire from different sides barrages the stage.

On an unrelated note, I've been having a lot of fun with SmileBASIC. It's nice to have a well documented system with an often-helpful debugger and no need to worry about linking libraries prioperly just to run some graphics. Right now I'm making a simple top-down game but I'm thinking I'd like to try making an audio modem that could link with a matching program that would run on my desktop just because.

Gaming responses to sexuality are strange sometimes it gets support and other times not and gets slammed. Hence some decide to strip it from the game, but that leads to its own controversies like with new Tomb Raider went from author intent and first game setup to that character being removed and it all being "Daddy Issues" that make Lara who she is as the Single Female Badass Tomb Raider obsessed with her family legacy.

Do you mean all the localization changes from Mother 2 to Earthbound? Because those were pretty much all a net positive. 90% of what it did was change jokes that depended on Japanese cultural references almost nobody in America had heard of to jokes that would actually make sense to western audiences. The Mother 3 fantranslation did a lot of the same kind of stuff, although not to the same extent.

And if you mean how they basically abandoned the series in the west after Earthbound didn't sell very well...well, better late than never.

The Mother 3 fantranslation is fantastic work - done by a fan who also happened to be a professional translator, and made possible through tremendous feats of software reverse-engineering - but I don't think I know any Mother series fans who wouldn't be excited about an official release.

"A thing to note about this device is that much of it’s production was started in 2014 and many of the stuff I list here was outlined by the late Satoru Iwata before his passing. Hence in the company, the NX is considered the last project of their late president. Employees since his passing utter a phrase at the end of meetings and during idea brainstorms which is “岩田のために!” which roughly translates “For Iwata!”

The importance of this is that this “new” Nintendo is highly motivated in delivering a fantastic system and games, something that I quote from an employee “have not seen this much forward momentum on a project since they launched the original "

It is as fast as prime but that's a problem since prime wasn't a mission based co-op shooter and was geared for exploration while this game has no exploration and is based around enemy gauntlets which are most fun when fast paced. Also it has prime's hold r for free moment camera which is again not good in a co-op shooter.

I'm kind of amazed by the reaction to the new Paper Mario.

NOBODY is defending it. Usually in this scenario there's a few people defending a game that's being hated on but for this I've seen nothing but universal hate.

They are selling a second season pass across four new packs. The first one has already been confirmed to be the Wind Waker pack with Medli included. They'll most likely do a Skyward Sword pack, but maybe they'll go into the portable games for the other two.

I do feel bad for Gamexplain though, they are the only ones covering Federation Force and those videos are getting buried in dislikes even though they are giving excellent analysis of the game.

Mediocre enough that I have no intention of ever playing it, but still, I can kind of see the appeal of what they seemed to be aiming for with the game.

And yeah, I've always liked Gamexplain. They actually seem pretty honest instead of just gushing over every game, and their analysis videos for trailers are usually pretty good. It just feels weird to like them because pretty much everything else on the internet that's even remotely like them is all stuff I hate.

What it counts as legally isn't what determines whether or not it's good for me as a customer. If I think getting complimentary games with my subscription to an online service doesn't make the subscription based system worth it, then I obviously won't like the one out of three major console developers not using that system deciding to deploy it.

I'm as wary as the next person about DLC and membership type stuff, but I'm not opposed to the idea. I don't buy enough Nintendo games to make signing up for one worth it to me but I don't care if other people want to sign up for that kind of service. The implementation is what matters, and that's what I'm wary of. I wouldn't be surprised if there ends up being exclusive content across a bunch of games that is only available for members, or something. Some of the amiibo stuff has been kinda awful, like needing wolf link to play Hero Mode with 4x damage in the new TP. But being able to buy Legends content without buying Legends is a good sign imo, so I don't really know what to expect from Nintendo now.

Colloquially, "included" is often equated with "free."

I can't speak to Gold because I have never owned any kind of Xbox, but PS+ and Prime both have incentives well worth the cost of those subscriptions. To act as if PS+ is some kind of scam brought on by that gosh darn modern industry is silly.

Given how PSPlus worked better when it was free, it's kinda a scam. It's just a scam some people are happy to pay because they love sony so much they're willing to send them a couple of bucks a month for online play. I can't blame Sony for implementing it, Gold memberships were easy money for Microsoft. The fact that there has been no noticeable improvement in online services for the paid service versus the free services provided by PS3, Nintendo, or PC kinda illustrates just how little you're getting for your money, though.

I don't think you actually remember anything about how these services went online or indeed how they operate now

PS3 had free internet access for all programs. 360 gated all programs behind a paywall. PS+ was introduced as a subscription service that had all the free games and discount material. 360 much, MUCH later introduced free games to Gold. PS4 added multiplayer behind PS+ but if you don't pay for PS+ (although again, why wouldn't you with the games), you can still use Netflix, YT, and whatever. The XboxOne has the same model.

But sadly, it's the XboxOne.

I should probably mention that I ( >199531 ) was someone else just responding to the part about not wanting the model fo paying for multiplayer. The phone stuff doesn't really matter much to me because I'm unlikely to use it anyway, and I don't expect this to creep into their actual console games particularly soon.

>199551
Also not >199550, but:
>PS4 added multiplayer behind PS+ but if you don't pay for PS+ (although again, why wouldn't you with the games)
Because I don't consider getting a discount on more games or even free games to be worth paying a subscription to access multiplayer. I don't consider it a scam though, just a deal that I'm not interested in.

You should be paying anyway for the games. I was a PS+ member for ages before the PS4 launched so I have this gigantic library of PS+ games and that just rolled onward with nothing having changed.
